“Smile, Sparks!”

Embers invited a professional photographer to capture “A Day in the Life of a Spark!” on Wednesday, October 6. In order to ensure that we all look our best, we ask that your student(s) come with all of their uniform pieces clean, neat, pressed to show off how awesome Embers Sparks can be! Teachers will provide more detailed information to the students regarding expectations. 

Please give the “5-point check” before leaving home Wednesday morning:

  • Hair well-groomed; Girls’ hair preferred worn down or half-up/half-down
  • Clean faces and sparkly smiles!
  • Red sweaters: vests, pullovers or cardigans (girls only) should be worn/brought to school
  • Clean tops, jumpers and skirts/pants
  • Proper socks and (clean) shoes

Photographs will be used for new website and marketing purposes only. If you do not wish your child to be photographed, please email Karen Reardon at kreardon@embersacademy.org at your earliest convenience. We thank you for your collaboration with this endeavor.
